Detroit, reborn as Bike City [VIDEO]

Wow. This video by Alex Gallegos about people riding bikes in Detroit is just beautiful. Folks of all ages coming together, building community, staying healthy, connecting with each other, making their city better and enjoying their lives -- all through the power of the bicycle. As one bike-shop owner points out, there aren't a lot of bike lanes in Detroit, but because the city is so underpopulated, there are a lot of car lanes that can be put to better use. My favorite part of the film may be the guy who lost 70 pounds and beat high blood pressure and diabetes by starting to ride: "I don't have to shoot insulin no more because I ride my bike like I ride my bike."
